I had brain a minute ago...

Nature is trying to kill me. Compliments of a month of rain of biblical proportions EVERYTHING is blooming right now. Trees, bushes, flowers, fungus of all manner. And they are all producing sneeze and mucus inducing spores. I am not even sure there is enough Claritin or Zyrtek to help. Do you know how hard it is to do yoga when your nose tickles like a rabid flea is up there? HARD.

I thought I had a cold, and it might have started out that way, but now it I am certain it is allergies. And along with all the sneezing and blowing of the nose comes the mental fog. Which is totally counterproductive to what I need to accomplish in my life. Work is off its rocker busy, and I have things on the home front that need attention.

Like swapping all my cold weather clothes for warm weather clothes, because yesterday it decided to be 90 degrees. Whee. Cooper refuses to consider wearing anything short sleeved or shorts instead of long pants. There was a meltdown worthy of John McEnroe in his heyday yesterday, when I attempted to put shorts on him. I hope he gets over that because it will be a long hot summer if he doesn't.

I also need to follow up with the City of Waltham as to why they are charging me another excise tax on my car. I think it is because I bought it in December. They just see it as I bought a new car, so I owe them more money. But it is the same car I had previously, which I leased. So I paid the excise tax on it already. SIGH.

And have I mentioned the dust or the dirt that is living on my floors? Three dogs and one toddler create a lot of gunk. And I need to do a thorough cleaning of the house.

But I begin something, and because I have this snot covered brain fog going on, I cannot remember for longer than 20 seconds what I was doing, or why I walked into a particular room, or why I opened the fridge. To make Cooper's lunch was the answer to the last question. Bob had to tell me.

Eventually the flowers and trees will all finish blooming, and if I live that long, my brain should clear. I am taking tomorrow off, so maybe I will be able to maintain focus long enough to accomplish two of the things on my list.

Welcome to the allergy bandwagon. Nothing helping here, I'm glad I'm not the only one who's dazed and confused!

Try for insight. Those oaks are a killer.

I have heard this at more than one blog lately. I was going through this last May and another blogger turned me on to a neti pot. It truly turned my life around! Have you tried one?
